Rabid Gravy is a project of the South London musician Jonathan Stowe. Jonathan has been making music for more than thirty years and for most of that time has been an experimenter and improviser, influenced by all the waves of underground music that have passed in that time, with an eye on the wealth of experimental music of the twentieth century.

The sound of Rabid Gravy is best described as noise with beats in it, forged with a hand selected set of real instruments rather than software, making each performance and recording unique.


Sturqen are César Rodrigues and David Arantes, a duo from Portugal. Their music explores a vast amount of sonic rhythmic sound where as they put it:

a techno-trance universe is combined with a constant noise attitude

Sturqen’s first album Piranha was released on Ukrainian label Kvitnu in 2009. This year, they followed that with the digitally released Peste EP also on Kvitnu.

The music on their showcase, is a mix between released and unreleased stuff. 100% analog sound.
